LOUIS VUITTON & UNDERSTATED MISCHIEF




Can you spot the Monogram?


This just in: Louis Vuitton has teamed up with the Japanese AVANT-GARDE PAINTER, POP ART ARTIST, FASHION DESIGNER, SCULPTOR, STREET PERFORMER AND POET, Yayoi Kusama – one of the most revered and best-selling living female artists.



The Green Pebbles Girls don't like to be obvious – but we sure as hell like to stand out! Is it French? Is it Japanese, is it Moschino or MiuMiu?.. The signature dots are painstakingly scattered just in the right places, Yayoi Kusama's exactitude and precision resonating in the most fascinating way with the timeless LV monogram obsession. 



Yayoi Kusama met Marc Jacobs, the current creative force behind LV, for the first time in her studio 6 years ago, capturing his imagination by a LV bag with the classic  monogram overridden by Kusama's signature polka-dot pattern.


Now, in anticipation of the opening of Yayoi Kusama's major retrospective in New York Whitney Museum, Louis Vuitton is launching another of its creative collaboration on the global scale: the new LV limited collection INIFINITELY KUSAMA, with clothes and accessories ranging from dresses to trench coats and from bags to bangles, adorned with the dots and tentacle-like “nerves” pattern of the Japanese artist.

Marc Jacobs has a history of getting artists to rework Louis Vuitton's motifs in the past — most notably Stephen Sprouse and Takashi Murakami. The new collaboration with Yayoi Kusama links beautifully to the most recent “dotty” creation of Marc Jacobs, his 2012 signature perfume Dot:






The collection will be available as a limited edition, on sale from 10 July, 2012 worldwide, with a second round to come in October 2012.

Currently, a major retrospective of Kusama's art work is on at Tate Modern, open through to June 5th  2012. Aside from the wearable art, Kusama and Louis Vuitton will also collaborate for the first time on several separate artworks, which will be showcased in the Louis Vuitton New Bond Street Maison in a dedicated exhibition space.
